The TEQUILA network seeks to face the current challenges to teacher education:

  • The demand for increased quality in in teaching and learning outcomes
  • The political pressure on teacher education to offer practice-based teacher education programmes, and for "evidence-based practice"
  • The desire of teachers and teacher educators for professional recognition, self-defined identities and fulfilling careers
  • The desire of prospective teachers for programs which fully prepare them for the profession and support them across their career trajectories
  • The need to empower teachers to deal with emerging educational issues and content in future classrooms
